Consultations and debates


"Mental health improvement involves action by Government, including local government, and by NHS, as well as organisations in the voluntary and private sectors and the choices that people make themselves."

Engagement paper on Future Strategy for Prevention of Suicide and Self Harm

The Scottish Government has set up a Working Group to consider future policy and action on prevention of suicide and self harm, in the context that the Choose Life strategy and action plan is approaching the end of its 10 year lifetime. The aim is to produce a new national strategy on suicide and self harm, to be published by the Scottish Government in late summer/early autumn 2013.
